ST. PAUL — Minnesotans who want health coverage to begin March 1 have until Saturday to sign up through the MNsure online insurance purchasing site.

The deadline does not apply to those applying for state-subsidized insurance through Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare. The MinnesotaCare deadline is Feb. 28. Medical Assistance applications can be turned in any time.

Right after the 5 p.m. Saturday deadline, the website will be down for maintenance. It is due back online at 6 a.m. Tuesday.
